Liberals will be screaming at the sky when they hear about this.
President Trump is erasing Obama-era PC phrases from the Center for Disease Control.
Donald Trump’s war on political correctness has extended to eliminating words and phrases used in official documents at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the left is losing its collective mind.
Seven words and phrases, including “diversity,” “entitlement,” “vulnerable,” “transgender,” “evidence-based,” “fetus,” and “science-based,” have reportedly been banned from official CDC documents.
And the Trump administration isn’t messing around. According to the CDC’s Alison Kelly’s statements to the Washington Post, any budget proposal-related documents sent to the Office of Management and Budget that contain those words have been sent back for “correction.”
Citing attendees, the Post reported that agency policy analysts were specifically given those instructions during a Thursday meeting.
The instructions even included alternative phrases in some instances. For example, “evidence-based” or “science-based” can be replaced with “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes.”
Trump’s war on political correctness has extended far beyond mere rhetoric. Early on, it eliminated the term LGBTQ from the Health and Human Services website and dropped it as a potential US Census Bureau category for the 2020 census. Additionally, any mention of climate change has been removed from the Environmental Protection Agency’s website.
